Twenty Things I Hate, and Twenty Things I Think Are Awesome.
(Kayley inspired me to write this.)
Hate. (This was surprisingly hard to complete – I’m pretty content, I guess. But I finally came up with twenty things.)
- Stupid voices in commercials. If you’re a Denver local, think of the O’Meara Ford lady. Nails on a friggin’ chalkboard, man.
- When my kids are completely wired at bedtime.
- The fact that every character in every kid-geared TV show is a smart-assed little brat.
- In Draw Something, when someone draws like a circle and a line and some random squiggle for “Titanic.”
- Also, when people write out the word. Why are we even playing?
- Getting the boingy bite of chicken. Ptooey!
- When I don’t get the joke. I AM CLEVER, GOD DAMMIT. I SHOULD ALWAYS GET THE JOKE.
- Volume disparity between songs on my iPod.
- When the dishwater gets cold and I have to reach in to pull the drain. Bleahhh.
- Cold feet.
- When I forget my next list item because my kids have to come in and tattle.
- Getting trapped behind a wall of lookie-loo walkers at IKEA.
- How long it takes to get any measurable amount of laundry done in this house.
- The fact that it’s cheaper to buy a new printer or a new cordless phone than it is to buy ink or a new battery. Yay for technological waste!
- When things are wonky and I can’t figure out why. Like how I just dicked around for half an hour trying to figure out why an image on Pinterest keeps pinning SIDEWAYS. WHAT IN THE HELL.
- Not having floss when I need it. I am a compulsive flosser, and will drive myself batshit crazy if I can’t unwedge something from my toofs in a timely manner.
- Having a stack of books on my nightstand, but no real desire to read them. I want to want to read, I just don’t want to read. Does that make any sense?
- Your shitty taste in music. Well, not YOU. But, you know what I mean.
- Not being able to find a bike helmet that doesn’t make me look like a tool.
- Being clumsy, stumbling, tripping, running into things. Lame.
Love. (This was easier.)
- Feeling like my life is exactly as it should be.
- Being comfortable in my own skin, for the most part.
- Being married to Paul, who is hysterical and adorable.
- Having cool, funny kids.
- Star Wars.
- Sushi. Oh my God, how I love sushi.
- Springtime, and all the fun it brings. (My birthday, pedicures after wearing boots for months, flowers in bloom)
- My iPhone. Hey, I can admit it.
- My faith.
- Kayley. As much of a pain in the ass as she, like all teenagers, can be, she brightens my world like no one else.
- New bras. (Especially the ones I just got, with “Age Defying Lift!” Oh, jeez.)
- My fabulous friends.
- The new sheets I just bought.
- Taco Star.
- My adorable bike, and going riding with my family. Whee!
- Thrift stores.
- Being a wife and mommy. Awwww.
